Another high school basketball player in Minnesota is being recognized by one of college basketball's blue blood programs.
Zeke Nnaji, a 6-foot-10 power forward from Hopkins High School, received a scholarship offer from the Kansas Jayhawks this week. Nnaji is the No. 2-ranked player in Minnesota's 2019 graduating class, trailing only Matthew Hurt of Rochester John Marshall High School, according to 247 Sports.
Hurt, a five-star recruit who has received offers from virtually every major program in the country, is ranked sixth nationally in 247 Sports' composite rankings. Nnaji isn't too far behind, coming in at No. 29 and extremely close to pushing his four-star rating to five stars.
The Gophers have offered both Hurt and Nnaji, but they have stiff competition from big-time programs all over the country.
Tyrell Terry, a four-star guard from DeLaSalle High School, is rated 97th nationally and has already committed to Stanford.
Minnesota's fourth-ranked player in 2019 is Lakeville North power forward Tyler Wahl, who is committed to Wisconsin. Wahl is also a four-star player.
Davidy Roddy, a 6-foot-5 guard from Breck High School tweeted that he's also recently received an offer from the Gophers. Roddy is also a star quarterback for Breck.
